Building India's first all-electric ride-hailing platform
Headquarters Gurugram, Haryana, India
BluSmart Mobility is building India's first all-electric ride-hailing service. Plagued by massive surge pricing, sub-standard cars, safety concerns, and increased waiting times, ride-hailing in India has become cumbersome for drivers and customers. Overworked drivers often must own their vehicles and frequently hop between platforms in search of a higher-paying rider. Frustrated customers experience unexpected price surges and unreliable service.
BluSmart Mobility disrupts this traditional ride-hailing model by offering 3,200 EVs—the largest EV fleet in India—alongside an ever-growing charging infrastructure. The company offers drivers a finance-free, flexible working model and gives customers market-leading customer service, including freedom from surge pricing and ride denials.
BluSmart has grown tremendously and plans to expand its fleet and charging infrastructure, enabling the company to reach profitability.
